Poetic justice

A suspected rhino poacher has been killed by an elephant in South Africa’s Kruger National Park, and his body then scoffed by lions.

The Park is obviously quietly gloating about this example of what can happen to nasty poachers, as it issued a press release, in which Glenn Phillips, the boss of the Park, said: “Entering Kruger National Park illegally and on foot is not wise, it holds many dangers and this incident is evidence of that. It is very sad to see the daughters of the deceased mourning the loss of their father, and worse still, only being able to recover very little of his remains.”

All that was left was a skull and a pair of pants.
